Question: Am I required to post notices regarding legally required leaves?

Both state and federal laws require employers to post notices for employees explaining their family leave rights. Certain employers are required to translate these notices into languages other than English. Employee handbooks must also contain policies relating to family leave.

The family/medical leave and pregnancy disability posters must be in another language if that is the primary language of 10 percent of your workers. Otherwise there is no legal requirement for any other posters or notices to be translated. Many employers choose to provide translated posters to provide their employees with accurate information about the law. In case of a lawsuit, this shows that the employer has taken reasonable steps to inform employees of important rights, such as the right to be free from workplace harassment.
